Product Showcase: Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses Part II










{Reported by Ashley Harris}

So did you like the Card Kit? I did! Well for this next installment of this article I wanted to focus on the patterned paper. I really enjoyed the versatility of the paper. It is double sided, which I am a huge fan of. I love that I could use it with my winter photos that weren't necessarily Christmas photos.

What I made:




As you can see, these photos are winter sledding themed. I was easily able to incorporate them into the Eskimo Kisses line. This line is so easy to work with and will definitely give a wintery feel to your projects.

*Tip: To make your layout a little 3D, just cut out some of the pattern and pop it up with foam tape or pop dots. So fun!!

Where and How Much:
Product: Eskimo Kisses Patterned Paper
Manufacturer: Basic Grey
MSRP:$0.75-$1.00
Available at: Scrapbook.com, Emma's Paperie*, A Cherry On Top

What do you think? Is this a line you would think about using for your layouts or more for your altered items and cards?

Fantastic use of a beautiful line of papers. I always love the Basic Grey products, and I especially love anything for the Holidays and wintertime. I tend to have a bit of difficulty using some of the tighter-patterned papers, and you gave me some great ideas here!

I particularly loved how these papers are wintery and not just Christmassy. Great examples

I would absolutely use this line!!! And you're right, they could be used for WINTER themes too not just Christmas.....come to think of it, I have a lot of pp's that are very focussed on Christmas lo's and projects!

Thanks for another awesome review!!!

I love this paper line. The snowflake paper in the "Rosey Cheeks" layout is my favorite!! Iespecially like the winter theme as opposed to Christmas theme. It 8is much more versitle.

I would love to make a mini with this about all the snow we had last winter. The papers just feel right for that.

I really like these papers. I was looking at all the other embellishments that match the line...love them, Great line!

The layouts are all really pretty.

It is so nice to have a paper pack for winter that isn't also Xmas! I can't wait to get some.

Emily said...

I'm more likely to use them for cards since the prints are so small and they work so well for cards, and I already have such a huge stash of Christmas papers that saving Basic Grey for cards just makes sense! But that doesn't mean I never would use it for a layout, sometimes you have the right photo and you just have to have that paper! I love all Basic Grey for cards especially, but they're good for layouts, too.

For me personally, I like the line for scrapbook pages. But my friend just used some of it on a christmas tree chipboard album that looked awesome. Thanks for the great reviews!
